Good heavens, it is March 6

ok, so we ate out, errrr  a week ago. And.. well, there has been a lot of sourdough bread baked, today I made a lovely Milk based bread from my beloved Laurel’s kitchen bread book – if I can get sourdough to pop, I certainly can get regular yeast bread to pop.  It was an early start for the bread, rose, shaped, placed in pans.  then I went for a LONNNNNNGGGGGG nap.  Came down to find bread all over the place.  I tore it out of the pans, and reshaped it, and let it rise, and put it into a coolish oven to oven proof as the oven came to heat.  ended up with REALLY PRETTY loaves risen over 2/3 above the edges – soft and lovely bread.  wiped it all over with butter and wrapped in cloth to cool. Awesome bread.
Today was also the smoking day.  yesterday we thawed a couple of roosters and three salmon.  Pablo filleted the salmon and I chopped the birds – I froze the breasts, again, and took out a package of rooster wings.   We brined all of the fillets and rooster bits, this morning they were set out to dry and Pablo smoked them in our smoker.  The salmon is now back in the freezer – smoked and portioned.  the chicken – well, some went into the oven to finish cooking, and some was mixed with chili sauce to cook as wings…

We have eaten rice, and cabbage, and eggs.  a mish-mash.  more to come.
